Good 7.2 From 252 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Was welcomed by Marian at check in who was exceptionally helpful. Throughout our stay Marian answered all our questions about directions and tourist attractions giving us some recommendations which we took and thoroughly enjoyed and have since recommended to our friends back home. As we were staying on the ground floor it was very noisy outside quite early which isnt the hotels fault.However on one of the nights the hotel seemed to be taking in deliveries of some sort through the access door on this floor in the middle of night which went on for some time waking us and preventing us from sleeping. Rooms should be sound proof if this is a common occurance. Overall despite the sleep interruption we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ballantrae hotel and would love to stay again.

Nice Hotel, Great Location
I was slightly concerned about staying at the Ballantrae Hotel, from reading some of the reviews. However, I didn’t need to worry as it really was ok. The location was great, just a short walk to the shops and Christmas Market, and the tram stopped just down the road. All the receptionists were friendly and welcoming. The room was a decent size, nicely decorated and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was clean and modern. The continental breakfast was as expected, and set us up for a day of walking. So all in all, I was very happy with the Ballantrae Hotel.

great location, nice people.
minor problems dealt with really quickly, - we were immediately offered another room in case the stairs would be a problem- (booked into the top room, which in Edinburgh can mean needing a sherpa) nice people, spacious rooms, recently fitted bathrooms.....great central location. didn't take breakfast option so can't comment.. hipster coffee across the road too tempting..
